Last week I found three short stories I wrote around ten years ago in Florence. I decided to read them, and I have to say that it was a particularly interesting experience.
As you can imagine, I wrote them in Italian, my first language. They’re pretty long, and that’s something I didn’t remember at all. I also noticed that they were sort of connected, thematically speaking. Did I want to write an entire book of short stories? I really don’t remember...
Anyway, it’s the writing style that made me think, and that’s because, although different, there are many, many elements that I brought with me during all these years. I’m talking about the use of metaphors, similitudes, anaphora and other rhetorical devices, mostly.
Will I find them again ten years from now?
Thanks for reading!
